What's the normal IgE for an adults, what range should worry?

What's the normal IgE for an adults, what range should worry?

Depends: It depends on what the lab standards are for the ige test. Usually, a simple cut off is between 60-100. And elevated ige might mean nothing without symptoms. Same with a low level of ige. ...Read more

How does anti-ige treatment work?

How does anti-ige treatment work?

Decoupling: Allergic illness occur when allergens activate mast cells releasing biochemicals. Allergens interact with mast cells through ige antibodies attached to mast cell receptors. Each ige antibody is specific for an allergen. Ige lasts for months but ultimately degrades & must be replaced. Anti-ige blocks the replacement process. Mast cells become denuded of ige & can no longer respond to allergens. ...Read more

My hubby's IgE is 1185. What preventive measures he have to take?

My hubby's IgE is 1185. What preventive measures he have to take?

Don't Rx a number: Ige level is largely genetic, not all that well understood, and the value itself isn't helping or hurting him. It's one piece of information in an allergy workup. If he has real allergies, you can be a big help. Best wishes. ...Read more

I m 25y student. Can you tell me steroids are safe for life time.... I take deflazcort 30mg daily in the morning due tuo high IgE level.. ?

Depends on need: Long term steroid treatment has adverse implications. You and your doctor need to determine the need for taking steroids and balance the need for treatment vs the side effects of steroids, . ...Read more

Are pseudoallergies to meds less dangerous than "true" IgE mediated allergies? Are they less likely to grow in severity over time?

Are pseudoallergies to meds less dangerous than "true" IgE mediated allergies? Are they less likely to grow in severity over time?

Both can be severe: For a medication allergy, a true ige mediated one can be as severe as one not mediated by ige. Anaphylaxis vs. Anaphylactoid. Same severe symptoms, just not ige mediated. These non-ige reactions can be to: blood products, ace inhibitors for high blood pressure, aspirin, nsaids, narcotics, anti-convulsants, and others. The severity is difficult to predict---treatment is same: avoidance! ...Read more

I have urticarial vasculitis, high ige, high red blood cell count, possible tmj, joint pain, what could this be? Oh and hernia.Esr is 20.

I have urticarial vasculitis, high ige, high red blood cell count, possible tmj, joint pain, what could this be? Oh and hernia.Esr is 20.

TMJ maybe the clue: Look at your tongue in the mirror and see if there are little square indentation around the edge. If so, that is because you push the tongue (unconsciously) against the back of the teeth and clench your jaw. That indicates a stressed person from 1. Poor diet, 2. Work or family stress 3. Any cause of fear. Check out your diet and try meditation that is easy to learn. ...Read more

Ige ref. range < or 114. mine are 566 h ku/l what's going on here, what does this mean?

Ige ref. range < or 114. mine are 566 h ku/l what's going on here, what does this mean?

Most Likely Allergy: IgE levels above the normal range are common amongst patients with allergies, asthma, and eczema. If you have these symptoms or diseases then this is nothing to worry about. If you don't have any of these problems, it could represent a parasitic infection and that is usually associated with an elevated eosinophil count on a routine blood count. ...Read more

Are you saying an IgE of zero means imunodeficiency? Are there any additional testing recommendations.

Are you saying an IgE of zero means imunodeficiency?  Are there any additional testing recommendations.

No allergy: Ige is an antibody that fights parasitic infections and reacts to allergens, it does not provide immunity from bacteria or viruses. We call it an immunodeficiency only if iga, m or g are below certain standard values. ...Read more

What could cause high IgE levels?

What could cause high IgE levels?

Genetics: The tendency to make more ige in response to foreign substances that enter the body (aka allergens) is inherited. Allergies and parastic infections are the common reasons why people develop high ige levels. There are some rare disorders associated with increased risk of infections associated with very high levels of ige. A board-certified allergist can help sort this out for you. ...Read more

My one year old is being treated for low IgG and low IgA levels then after being re tested her IgG and IgA were ok but now her lgm and IgE are low wha?

Hypoimmuneglobulinem: First question to you is: why your one year old was diagnosed with low immunoglobulins? Next question is: how is he being treated? Is he receiving IV igg? Now lastly, is he under care of a pediatric immunologist in an academic institute? ...Read more

Can I lower my ige?

Can I lower my ige?

Yes: Treatment of atopic disease, such as atopic dermatitis or asthma, can result in lowered IgE. The B-cells that make IgE depend on certain signals in the body to live and produce antibody. Time, changes in environmental/food/drug exposure, medicating specific diseases can all result in decreases in both total and specific IgE levels ...Read more

Hi i have ige reading of 3,850 is it genetic?

Hi i have ige reading of 3,850 is it genetic?

Can Be...: Elevated total serum IgE is seen in mainly allergic diseases like allergic rhinitis and eczema. It is also seen in some primary immunodeficiencies, parasitic and viral infections, certain inflammatory diseases, and some malignancies. Atopic conditions like allergic rhinitis and eczema definitely have a genetic component to them. ...Read more

I heard that IgE is specific to peanuts. Is that true?

I heard that IgE is specific to peanuts. Is that true?

No: Of the 5 types of antibodies, ige is the one involved in allergy triggering allergic rhinitis, asthma & food allergies. Cat allergy occurs when your immune system makes ige against cat proteins in cat hair or dander. Peanut allergy occurs when you make ige against peanut proteins. Cashew allergy requires ige to cashew. Each specific ige antibody defines an allergy to the substance it recognizes. ...Read more

What is the function of the extra domain in IgE & igm?

What is the function of the extra domain in IgE & igm?

Trick question: Are you studying immunology? The extra domain on ige indicates a unique role for the c2 domain in the interaction between ige and fcri. C2 reduces the off-rate of the ige/fcri, thereby resulting in a more stable complex. It is felt that the domain on igm co-contributes to the pentamic structure production. ...Read more
